Emma  - ioMerino Outsider


Trail Runner. Australia

“I like to consider myself a bit of a nomad. I have the perfect amount of routine and 'gypsiness'. I take every opportunity to get out and explore new places. I like to road trip in my swag and just recently purchased myself a sick Nissan Urvan. I’ve been running for 5 years, I started on road marathons and transitioned to trail ultramarathons. Training for ultramarathons are way more exciting, you HAVE to be out in nature running the hills and scuffing up the dirt. This is why I prefer trail running, it never really feels like strict training, it’s always fun. The harder and more technical races, the better. I like the idea of races that I might not be able to finish.”

Fabric Guide

While Merino is an amazing natural fibre, not all Merino fabrics are created equal. At ioMerino, we make our own fabrics, using only the best quality fibres, and to very specific specifications that make the most of the natural benefits of Merino. All of them are 'Merino rich’. No cheap blends passed off as Merino. No cheaper scratchy fibres or synthetic substitutes to save money. No unethical production. And each fabric is made for a specific purpose. So if you see something with a small amount of elastase or nylon added, you can be sure it absolutely needs to be there to enhance the natural stretch and durability. 

It took every bit of our 140 years of experience in the wool industry to perfect our fabrics, but we think you’ll agree the end result was more than worth the effort.

Ethically Made. Ethically Sourced. Perfectly Natural.
